Tonight's the night - Bonfire Night.

This was all the excuse we needed to head into the archives and go back 26 years to 1997 when organised bonfires were held across East Lancashire.

Here we present a selection of photographs from just some of them.

It would appear that the food available was almost as important as the firework displays with hundreds enjoying the night.

Perhaps you went to one of the bonfires featured here. You might even recognise yourself on one of the pictures.

If you have any photos of bonfire night celebrations over the years, do let us know and we can share them with Looking Back readers next week.
